Morgan gave a brief shoutout to Filipino nurses in “Good Morning Britain.” One of them works for a hospital where UK’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson is in intensive care unit.

“Amazing number of Filipinos working on NHS, unsung heroes. Just like many. But I just want to give them a shoutout helping everybody right now,” the TV personality said.

Morgan lauded Filipino and other immigrant healthcare workers who are doing “all the amazing works,” mentioning on air the names of some Filipina nurses and the hospitals they work for.

“We forget about this extraordinary workforce that comes from all around the world to help the NHS,” he added.

Morgan also acknowledged the contributions of the immigrants in Britain who are saving people’s lives and “doing an amazing job.”

Earlier, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson received oxygen support after spending the night in intensive care with a deteriorating case of coronavirus.
